Union County Real Estate Lawyer

Whether you are a home buyer or seller, our office has the experience and expertise to represent you in your transaction. You can be assured that we will handle your real estate legal matter with professionalism, knowledge and skill.

For most of us, a real property transaction involving either a sale or a purchase of residential or commercial property is either the largest or one of the largest monetary transactions in which one becomes involved. Therefore, it is beneficial to retain a real estate attorney to advise you.

We help you with some of the following:

If you are buying a home

  • Examining title records (previous sales) looking for errors or issues that could delay the sale
  • Resolving any discovered issues prior to the close
  • Verifying that the seller has the right to sell the property
  • Negotiating and explaining the terms of the contracts and loans
  • Reviewing all the documents to ensure accuracy
  • Scrutinize the adjustments, including taxes owing and utilities costs paid, prior to the transaction closing.
  • Attend the closing and review all the papers you will be required to sign.
  • Arrange title insurance protection to protect you from losses due to title defects.
  • Ensure you receive a valid registered ownership subject only to the liabilities you have accepted.

If you're selling a home, your lawyer should

  • Review the binder and review or prepare the purchase and sale agreement, including negotiating its terms.
  • Prepare the deed and power of attorney if necessary.
  • Deal with title issues as they arise and help correct them.
  • Attend the closing and review all the papers you will be required to sign.
  • Arrange for transfer of security deposits.
  • Arrange for insurance certificates if needed.

We charge a flat fee for most real estate transactions.
